Migration Path for SM 9.34, due to HP/HPE split

Jump to solution

Mainly due to the splitting of HP/HPE, but also wanting to upgrade, I am working to determine the best migration path from 9.34 P5 (non-Process Designer).  

My main goal is to get off of 9.34, because of the support ending later this year.  I would eventually want to migrate to codeless, but need to avoid the considerable amount of effort and complexity of having to reimplement all modules at once, so I will not be going straight to codeless.  

Has anyone done this? Can you please provide recommendations on the best path?  

Below is a list of possible upgrade paths that I have identified:   

1) Upgrade directly to 9.5x Hybrid. 

2) Upgrade to 9.41 Classic then to 9.5x Hybrid. 

3) Upgrade to PDCP3 then to 9.5x Hybrid. 

4) Upgrade to PDCP3 then 9.41 Hybrid then to 9.5x Hybrid.

Hi SCSM123,

Personally I prefer to go slow regarding upgrades. With that being said I suggest this:

1- If you have limited time and resources go to 9.41 Classic

2- If you have enough time and you are aware of the customization level in your system and it's not extensive go to 9.5x Hybrid.

3- If you have a lot of time and your system customization level is high I'll go to PDCP3 and then to 9.41 Codeless that will go easily into 9.5x Codeless.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the response, JD. 

My time and resources are definetly limited, so I think that going to 9.41 would be a good comprimise.  It would keep us in support until 2019 thus giving us additional time for looking at the upgrade to 9.5x.

I've been doing some more thinking on this and have a followup question....

What patch do you recommend upgrading to?  Do you recommened immediatly going to the latest patch (P5) or going to an earlier patch?

Hi,

You can always use latest patch, just follow the documentation so you don't miss steps.

Also anytime we will ask to use the latest patch because it includes more fixes and unless in the support software web site is a warning to not use it, latest patch will always be the best version.
